Where should I plant my Crocus cartwrightianus?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 17 July 2013 10:22 AM
Thought to be the wild precursor of the domesticated Saffron Crocus, Crocus sativus, this beautiful little flower is ideal for naturalising. The flowers arrive in September to November and are lilac-white with darker veins.

Crocus cartwrightianus will grow in full sun or partial shade and should be planted 7.5cm deep and 10cm apart in a moist well drained soil. They are also suitable for growing in containers.

A dry dormant period is required during summer and so protection is needed from excessive rain.
